  • Australia opened this series with a dominant win but South Africa hit back last time out to take it to the deciding final match.
  • Australia posted 196/6 first up, before Ashton Agar's hat-trick and five-wicket haul helped bowl, South Africa, out for a new national low of 89 in just 14.3 overs.
  • South Africa showed vast improvement with the bat last time out, however, as Quinton de Kock hit 70 in a total of 158/4, which proved 12 runs too many for Australia as David Warner top-scored with 67* from 56 balls.

SA vs AUS Toss Prediction 

South Africa have won the toss on both occasions so far, so Australia are due this one. They may look to chase as they bid to improve on their last showing.

SA vs AUS Weather Report 

Cape Town should be clear and sunny all day, but there will be a lot of humidity in the evening and there is expected to be quite a bit of wind too.

SA vs AUS Pitch Condition 

Newlands is unusual in South African cricket in that it tends to assist the spinners more.

Team NEWS:

 SA Team News 

Dale Steyn was once again rested for the second match of a series, as he was against England too. Heinrich Klaasen and Temba Bavuma are out injured, so Reeza Hendricks came into the team last time out. Newlands may demand an extra spinner, which means Bjorn Fortuin comes back into contention.

 AUS  Team News 
Australia was unchanged last time out, but D’Arcy Short may be a useful option to consider if they wish to field another spinner. Mitchell Marsh and Matthew Wade have started ahead of him in the last two matches. Jhye Richardson and Sean Abbott are the other two players not to feature so far.

 Key Players: 

 SA Key Players: 

 Quinton de Kock: 
Scored five fours and four sixes to get back to the form he showed against England on his way to 70 from 47 balls last time out.

 Rassie van der Dussen: 
Hit 37 from 26 balls in the middle order to issue a timely reminder of why he is such an important part of the South African batting line-up.

 Tabraiz Shamsi:  
Conceded just 17 runs from his four overs last time out, and the Cape Town wicket should offer him some more assistance too.

 AUS Key Players: 

 David Warner:
Top-scored with 67* from 56 balls last time out, including five fours and a six, but he will know he needed to score quicker in that chase.

 Steve Smith:
Followed up his 45 from 32 balls in the first game with 29 from 26 last time out, to continue what has been some superb batting form of late.

 Ashton Agar:
Started the series with five wickets, including a hat-trick, and a spin-friendly wicket will offer him the chance of more wickets this time out.

 Team Forms: 


South Africa lost their last series to England and suffered a crushing defeat to start this series – 89 all out was their lowest T20i score, and their 109-run loss was their biggest – in terms of runs – in the format.

They bounced back last time, however, as Quinton de Kock’s 70 helped them to 158/4 and they restricted Australia to 146/6 in reply.


Australia’s winning streak in T20i cricket ended last time out, though they could still back-up series wins against Sri Lanka and Pakistan if they win the final match of this series too. Ashton Agar was their star man with 5-24 – including a hat-trick – in a dominant 108-run win first-up but they scored too slowly in pursuit of 159 to win the second game. David Warner hit 67* from 56 balls, but Australia finished on 146/6.
